Enrollment Procedure for Currently Enrolled Students
At the beginning of the second semester, parents of currently enrolled students will be requested to submit an application for re-enrollment before January 17th and the open enrollment period. Those parents who submit applications for re-enrolment during the open enrollment period will be guaranteed admission for the upcoming school year.
General Enrollment Policy and Procedure
Beehive Science & Technology Academy is an open-enrollment public charter school. Therefore, it is open to all eligible students on a space available basis and does not discriminate in its admissions policies or practices on the basis of race, color, national origin, creed, sex, ethnicity, sexual orientation, mental or physical disability, age, religion, ancestry, or athletic performance. All parents wishing to enroll their students in BSTA must complete and return an Application for Enrollment. First preference in admissions is given to currently enrolled students. Second preference is given to children of founding members of the school. Third preference is given to siblings of students already enrolled in the school. The remaining spaces will be filled by open enrollment applicants. Open enrollment deadline for the 2012-13 school year is Thursday, February 9, 2012. If, at the end of the open enrollment period, the number of Open Enrollment Applicants exceeds the number of seats available for any grade, a lottery will be held on Friday, February 10, 2012 to determine which applicants will be enrolled in that grade. For detailed information about the lottery procedure, please find the BSTA Lottery Procedure document below.
If, at the end of the open enrollment deadline, there are still openings, we will continue accepting applications until all openings for new students are filled. All the parents of the students selected in the lottery will be contacted following the lottery and will be provided the registration forms. The parents of a child selected for the enrollment must accept the position by returning the registration forms by February 17, 2012. If the registration forms are not timely received, the enrollment will be terminated and the next student on the waiting list will be considered for enrollment on that slot. If parents thereafter desire to enroll their student at BSTA, their application will be placed at the end of any existing wait-list for the grade in which the student desires to enroll. Enrolled students are required to take Saxon Math placement test. Parents of these students need to call the front office to make an appointment for their students to take the test.
Note 1: Applicants who are not admitted for the 2012-2013 school year will be required to re-apply the following year. Moreover, the waiting list for 2012-2013 school year will not carry over into the 2013-2014 school year.
